Near the end of the match, he even faked a heart attack to buy some time. All in the presence of legends like Mick Foley, Bret Hart, Undertaker, Flair finished the match with a signature figure-four leglock.

While many fans have commented that it was uncomfortable to watch the 73-year-old take part in the pay-per-view, others are impressed that he was able to go out in such a spectacular way.
